Weird email issue

Post by Light Speed » Mon Jul 11, 2005 12:02 am

Running 2.0.15 (will update to .16 in a few days)

Emails go out fine for people subscribed to recently created or posted to topics but if someone posts to an old topic no emails go out.

Any idea what could cause this?

phpbb 2.0.15
Linux
Apache 1.3.33
php 4.3.11
mysql 4.1.10

Mail set in admin to send using SMTP.

Posibly a bad email address is subscribed to that post.

They are topics that worked fine with all emails going out to members subscribed to the topic and then sat dormant with no postings so they worked to the subscribed members emails before. Then if a subscribed member tries to post again or a new member tries to post, no emails. The same people on the new posts that send out fine are on the old ones that don't sooooooo :(

Why would a bad email stop a mailing? The server would just get a bounce or an error on that one while sending. The rest should go through.
